Back from the Southwest

Blogging (and responding to comments) has been even more sparse the past few weeks, as you may have noticed. I was away, picking up on more of the things that I missed from having a travel-averse mother. I finally made my first journey to both the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas, about which I'll probably have more to say in the coming days (of course, I said that about last year's trip to Utah, too, and you're still waiting for that).

I'll just enliven things with one comment: It is possible, no matter what the Park Service says, to hike from the rim of the Grand Canyon to the Colorado River and back in one day, though I am not minimizing it as a challenge. But the wife and I did it, it was not unbelievably difficult, and I'll write more about that for those who care at some point. Anyway, ho hum, I'm back to the quotidian, and none too thrilled about it.

i'm in nyc for the week but i'm still jealous. Maybe they discourage the full hike because it puts the hardest work at the end as darkness looms.

I look forward to returning to skimming, selectively responding, and being ignored in your primary reader role.

began reading the (old) biography of Ayn Rand. there's a new one but B&N had this one.
